Dakota Marker week kicked off with a bang two Sundays ago when former North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz hit former South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert on a 13-yard opening-drive touchdown for the Philadelphia Eagles. But things got a bit more competitive from there for the two former Missouri Valley Football Conference standouts.

Their alma maters faced each other Saturday as the No. 1 Bison defeated the No. 3 Jackrabbits 21-17.
Wentz tweeted he and Goedert made a bet on the outcome of the game. We didn't find out until today what that bet was. Goedert had to wear NDSU gear for all of social media to see. As someone who liked nothing more than beating NDSU, which the Jacks did in Goedert's junior and senior seasons in 2016 and 2017, the rookie probably waited out his punishment for as long as possible.

If anyone should understand, though, it's Wentz.
Wentz had to wear James Madison gear a couple years ago when the Dukes ended NDSU's streak of five straight FCS national titles with a semifinal win in the Fargodome.
John DeFilippo, Philadelphia's quarterback coach at the time and current Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator, is a former JMU quarterback.
